Twitter Witness



Key Bible Verse: Again [Jesus] said, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I am sending you.” (John 20:21)

Dig Deeper: Titus 2:1-10

I visited ESPN’s headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut, when my book The Mentor Leader was released. The network was hosting me for what they called the “car wash” – appearing on a wide variety of shows in a short period of time.

Producer Jason Romano took me around the set. I had met Jason a couple of years earlier but hadn’t had time to get to know him. This time, we had a chance to talk about a lot of things, including matters of faith and about using the platforms God gives us.

Jason is taking advantage of social media with several thousand followers on Twitter. Fans check his updates to keep track of what’s happening at ESPN. And every morning, Jason posts a Bible verse. Those who don’t want to read it don’t have to, but Jason is letting them know what his priority is.

There are many areas that can be used to impact others for the Lord, whether through social media, other technology, or face-to-face interactions. Because God has made each person unique, you don’t have to do it someone else’s way. God has sent you into the world to impact others, wherever you are, in whatever way fits you best.
